Photo Category: Gas Tankers built before 1980
Rotterdam 1/5/83. George Gibson's Heriot was one of a handful of small gas carriers built in the early 70s with a refrigeration system capable of handling liquid natural gas (LNG) in addition to LPG and ethylene. However, in reality, LNG was never carried in these ships as it was (and mostly still is) a commodity to be transported by large ships dedicated to specific long-term business and routes.

Phil yes that's right, I confused the heriot with sophie. The bodies of Sophie are longer. Sorry

I don't understand the relevance of your comment. This is the HERIOT. The SOPHIE SCHULTE was a different vessel which later became FRISIAN GAS and CORAL STAR.

Thanks for a great photo of a favourite ship. I served on her as 2nd mate for several trips between September 1975 & August 1977under Capts. Clark, Mitchell & Addison. We mostly carried ammonia & occasionaly propelyene around W & NW Europe, some of the ports being Seville (where I first joined) Tees, Grangemouth, Terneuzen, Stade, Avonmouth, Bilbao. I seem to remember the ship was built in Bremerhaven, where we would return to drydock, as I think the Germans were about the only people that could decipher the labels on the quite complex pump & compressor control equipment! It was a hard working ship, with great officers & crew who all pulled together to make the long hours bearable.
